firsts

I heard him scurrying, collecting books on the loft bed before dawn, unable to sleep.

Both kids bounced out of bed this morning, anxious and curious to see what the day would bring.


Lexi walked with a friend to the bus stop, making strides further her own way - which is right and good.

And Zack wore a hole in the carpet, disgusted with this new late start school schedule.

They pulled away, one at a time and I loaded up the dogs and headed for the lake, to walk in the mist and fog and dream about what this year will bring my way.

I got my baby off to her first day of school this am, too. *sigh* Syd started yesterday and thankfully her mothering side came out to get her on the bus today, to take care of her baby sis. I worry about her over concern to care for us all, but it's so good for Maddi to have a caring sister. A full day of Kindergarten is about to come to an end... I wonder what stories I will here in the hours to come. I had a lazy morning and then an afternoon of kid-free shopping! Sounds like you had a good start to your new school year as well. :)

I'm so thankful to be back on a *routine,* even with the drama that goes along with it!

Yay! We made it through the first week of school. (Yes, it's only a three day week, but STILL.)

One of these mornings, let's walk in the mist together with the dogs! :-)
